About the property

This newly renovated, elegant, enchanting, and historical bright yellow Victorian home was built in the 1850s. Speaking of ocean views….enjoy the benefits of having an ocean view right in your front yard! Located on Ocean Avenue you can see the entire ocean from this lovely home, which has 7 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 14 people. There is one parking space available on the street, a gas grill on the back porch, and an outer shower for your convenience.

As you enter the home, you will be amazed at the beauty of the fireplace. On the first floor, enjoy an ocean view room with a fireplace. There is also one large bedroom with one queen bed and one twin bed. On the second floor, enjoy a beautiful and cozy ocean view room with a telescope. There are also five bedrooms with a queen bed in each; and one bedroom with two twin beds. There are four full bathrooms located throughout the home for your convenience.

This beautiful home has all new appointments such as: a new kitchen, new granite counter tops, new showers, new mattresses for all beds, all new furniture with an entirely furnished home, new air conditioners, and the home is freshly painted.

Indulge in a wonderful meal with your family in the formal blue and white dining room, which the owners lovingly refer to as “The Great Wall of China!” Relax and enjoy the spacious family room, living room, and formal dining room which all comfortably seat 14 people.

Conveniently located steps away from the ferry, this home is only 100 feet away from the beach. As the home is located in town, you are close to quaint downtown shopping, night life, restaurants, churches, parks, hiking and bike paths and trails, deep sea fishing, car, bike and motor cycle rentals. Enjoy a tour around the island by way of public transportation (the bus stop), or taxi.

From your front porch, look at the beautiful ocean view, which includes a park and gazebo where you will see people getting married and feel their job of beginning their lives as one. Listen to various genres of music in the park performed by local and national bands. Watch fireworks from the lower and upper decks of the home.

Witness the uplifting joy of experiencing people fly kites or indulge in this activity for your own pleasure.

This house is featured on many postcards, calendars, and other media. It is very well known throughout Oak Bluffs! Even the new 2015 Martha's Vineyard calendar features this premier home inside for the month of October.

As you can see, there is no need for a car…you’re in Oak Bluffs, where the action is only a short walk away! After a long day at the beach, shopping, dining, and fun, you’re steps away from home! We look forward to seeing you! A $40 gift certificate to the famous Back Door Donuts located across the street is complementary with your stay (each donut is only $1.50)!

Love house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience. Spent Mother's Day weekend with my 87 yo mother, sisters and female cousins. Close enough to town that my mother could walk to dinner one night. Lots of space for together and alone time. (9 people) My mother couldn't stop talking about the old fashion craftsmanship of the cottage. Quaint, and very Martha's Vineyard.

June 2016 - Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Be careful of fraudulent offers on the internet. After almost sending a "hacker" $5,000 we came upon this property via VRBO. We were extremely cautious for fear of scams but the owner of this property was very credible and we felt comfortable with the transactions early on.

Our stay at this property was great! We visited during the second week of June. The location receives a 5 out of 5 stars. You can't get a better location. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING is within walking distance (beach, restaurants, grocery store, shops, post office, DONUTS). We rented bikes for the heck of it in order to venture out, but honestly you don't need a bike or car. Circuit Ave is literally at your backdoor. We visited with a large group, including four teenage boys. The city is safe enough to allow them to roam unsupervised. The house itself was great, again 5 out of 5. I can't think of a single negative thing to say except that the dryer was broken...but....after I contacted the owner, she had a brand new one delivered the next day!!!! My in-laws who are in their 70's went along with us as well and they simply enjoyed sitting on the front porch, rocking and people watching. Everything was clean and tidy and the décor was darling. Everything has been well-kept. The kitchen is stocked so that all you have to bring is food. And be sure to bring your own towels and bed linens (fitted and flat sheets and pillow cases). There is also a cottage in the back that sleeps an additional 4-5 people and it is just as darling with its own kitchen. There is a patio/courtyard area in the back along with grills. The neighborhood seemed very safe, we had no concerns.

The owner was professional, friendly, and eager to please. We will definitely be visiting again!!!!

Heavenly Vacation on Martha's Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Martha's Vineyard spent in a historic Victorian home with a million dollar ocean view!!! The house is kept immaculately clean and all of the beds are comfortable and fresh. The furniture and decor top notch yet cozy. The house reflects elegance and attention to every detail from fresh towels and linens to local flowers. After a week's stay, our spirits had become rejuvenated from just relaxing and reading in this heavenly environment. We didn't even need a car since restaurants,shops,and groceries were within walking distance from home.

Yellow, white, flowers , fun , beauty and view!

  • 5 of 5

My college friends and I came to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We chose this centrally located cottage. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen came well equipped. The decor country cottage chic. The front porch with the wicker furniture and fabulous view was the back ground for a magical stay. A short walk from the ferry and all the wonderful sights in Oak Bluffs. I would highly recommend this gorgeous, spacious home.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property in the last week of May, this was an amazing experience, just perfect!

The stunning view of the ocean from the porch of this house provided us with a wonderful relaxed atmosphere every evening.

This beautiful house is immaculate, cozy, charming, elegant and very comfortable...a super welcoming house. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everyday staples (coffee, tea, sugar, salt and pepper)

The owner was very helpful, accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend this property. We would love to stay here again next year, my whole family loved it

Happy Campers

  • 5 of 5

All 12 of us had a lovely time and relaxed weekend vacationing at this rental property. The house catered to all our needs with 7 bed rooms, beautiful and fully equipped kitchen, a large dining room with a wide and long dining table that could seat all 12 of us comfortably , a sit out with the beautiful view of the ocean. This property is very well furnished. It shows class and good taste .Each room in the house has a classy island decor with very comfortable beds and bed room accessories. The property is in walking distance to the market place, restaurants and the beach. The owner of the property is very friendly and was flexible about the check-in / check-out time. She handed the keys to us 3hrs before the check in time as we arrived a little too early. This classy , clean and beautiful property made our vacation a great experience. I will recommend this rental property to anyone looking for vacation rentals and I personally will go back to this rental every time we vacation on Martha's
